Fuji 8-16 f2.8 (Why it's not worth $2000) vs Fuji 10-24 f4


Im not here to tell you to run out and buy the latest and greatest just because. I prefer to "measure and report". Thank you to BH photo for their continued support, links to these lenses can be found below:

TL/DW - The 8-16 f2.8 is an incredibly well built Fuji XF Pro Red Label lens, but with 20 lens elements it has some limitations in both sharpness as well as exposure. You won't see them unless you are shooting side by side with the 10-24 f4 and really pixel peeping, but at $2000 ($1000 more than the 10-24 f4), I don't think its worth it unless you are a professional making money with your photography. IMO the 8-16 2.8 should be priced around $1100.
